Nothing wrong with the bench you don't have to quit if you don't want to otherwise just use the time on the bench to job search and if you think you are close to an offer try avoid getting staffed

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?

Dilemma: I am 1 of 4 workstream leads on a large digital transformation programme. My background is Enterprise Architecture, and I am leading a team that includes Enterprise, Solution, Integration and Data Archs. If I wasn't so desperate for the resources, I'd roll off 2 new integration archs that recently joined. They both openly challenge my decisions (which are made in consultation with the team) with vague arguments, speak to me as if they need to "dumb down for the girl", and (continues)

I’m overwhelmed. I’m drowning in work and despite working insane hours since July, I can’t seem to get in top of it.
